Paris on a roll

Every Friday night, you can join the Paris Roller group and enjoy a roller night skating ride in Paris, with hundreds of other people.
The association is a-political, not-for-profit, and non-religious--in short, independent!
The organization is built on principles that started in the streets, with unauthorized rides. At that time, a small group of skaters was organizing in the city to skate for pleasure, discover the city and meet other people—in other words, for freedom.
Of course today, due to the growing popularity of the Friday Night Fever skate tour, things are changing … But the basics remain the same. The tour is free and open to anyone who can control his or her speed. It is a space of freedom.
Pari Roller does not consider itself the “owner” of the tour, but rather it guarantees a certain philosophy and spirit of the tour.
This weekly ride gathers the largest number of skaters in the world… and it is yours.
The meeting point is: Place Raoul Dautry in the 14th, near Montparnasse.
When: all year round, except in case of rain or when road surfaces are wet. Every Friday. Start at 10pm for a 3-hour ride through Paris (return to Montparnasse at 1am).
Lenghth: 30Km. The week’s route is generally published on Thursdays.
So what are you waiting for? Grap your roller blades and join!
